It was promising to be a hot, sticky day. TV broadcasters had the temperature at a sweltering 39 degrees centigrade. Not exactly a day to be out and about.
But nothing was going to dampen my spirits. There was a yarn sale waiting for me!
The Yarn ‘N Lemonade sale, held on May 2, had been in the works for two months. I was beyond excited for this; not only would I be spending the day with Renee Rose from The Yarn Traveler, but I would be meeting the brilliant beauties behind three other local yarn shops and I would be completely surrounded by gorgeous wonderful yarn. It was a fiber-fanatic’s dream come true.
I arrived early, but I still wasn’t the first on the scene. There were already a few dedicated yarn souls looking through the colorful bounty displayed by our hosts. Words completely fail me at this time, so I’ll let my pictures speak for me!
Speaking of ‘yarn on display’, take a gander at these beauties!
We were having so much fun, the hosts decided to extend their sale til 4pm! It was a happy get-together of yarn enthusiasts, with the best company a girl could ask for (and the yummiest lemonade that was finished far too quickly).
I was fortunate enough to stay until the very end, just so I could listen in on their post-sale meeting. I’m prohibited from disclosing more, but I can say that we’re going to have a very interesting year ahead.
This Wednesday, instead of my WIPs (which are still WIPs, boohoo), I’ll be posting my awesome haul from the sale, as well as a few announcements from Crafty Kitten Paws, The Yarn Traveler, Yarn Shack and Yarns Kurazu Rumeka. Stay tuned!
